Outside of Lambda, Lior is excited to be a senior board member of the Harvard Journal of Law and Gender (indisputably the most awesome journal at Harvard).

After graduating from Harvard College and working in DC for a few years, Sean and his fiancé Luis were fortunate enough to come back as HLS classmates. In the long run, Sean would love to return to DC and work on gender and sexuality policy. His current hobbies include running, watching TV, and trying to plan a wedding.
